I am so thrilled to bring you a sneak peek of Alyssa and Cameron’s The Commons 1854 Wedding.
We were blessed with a wonderful fall day with lots of sunshine and love!
Let’s hear about the wedding day from Alyssa!

Coming Home – Leon Bridges
In college at Salem State University. We met in the upper dining hall on the north campus.
Portland Maine was the first trip we took together and where we started our relationship. One of our favorite bands was playing there in July 2019. We decided to make a weekend out of it and I desperately wanted to see this lighthouse. As we were walking this trail, I stopped to take a picture of the lighthouse. Cameron set up his camera, for what I thought would be a picture of us, but he actually set up a video and proposed!
The first look, intro, first dance… I loved the whole thing! I can’t pick a favorite :)
It went by so fast, but was amazing especially given the situation with COVID-19. It was beyond what we could have imagined.
Be flexible and trust your vendors. Everything we had planned for the wedding basically went out the window when the pandemic started. But we hired great vendors who put incredible safety measures in place.
Smile! And start your skincare routine early, ladies. Hydrate hydrate hydrate!
It’s a Maggie Sottero sweetheart lace dress. I wanted something timeless and classic
Amazing! People tend to dread getting their picture taken, but it was so easy and relaxed.
We did! Cameron was adamant about doing a first look and I’m so happy we did it. I was very nervous and seeing him before the ceremony made all those nerves disappear.

The venue made all the food there and it was incredible! For appetizers, we had bacon wrapped scallops, stuffed mushrooms, and crab cakes among other things! Entrees were fillet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and chicken piccata with risotto! For desserts, we opted to go with whoopee pies that were individually wrapped.
